Drug dealer jailed for four years
7:00am Saturday 16th February 2013 in News
A man has been jailed for four years after police stopped him with 200 street deals of Class A drugs hidden under his car seat and £400 cash in a bag in the car.
He pleaded guilty to possession of heroin and cocaine with intent to supply, possession of the money as criminal property and simple possession of a small amount of cannabis.
Prosecutor Richard Davies said police stopped Khan in Bowling Back Lane, Bradford, on February 6 last year because he was talking on his phone while driving.
A search of his VW Polo, after they smelled cannabis, uncovered 180 wraps of heroin and 20 wraps of crack cocaine under the seat. The cash and a notebook were in a bag in the car.
The court heard that Khan was the sole carer for his mother. He was remorseful and claimed to be acting under the direction of his father.
